Destin Hans Myles Nooski arrived at 2:20 a.m. on Jan. 3, a third son for Nina Skadsheim and Tyler Nooski and a brother for Kailen and Noah.

Destin Hans Myles Nooski came two-and-a-half weeks early but was just in time to be the first baby born in 2012 on the Sunshine Coast.

"I hoped to have the New Year's baby," happy mom Nina Skadsheim said on Jan. 3, just 12 hours after giving birth to little Destin.

She knew she was in the running when she found out there weren't many other moms due in early January.

Because of her high blood pressure, Skadsheim was induced at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 2, but Destin wasn't in a hurry to arrive.

It wasn't until 2:20 a.m. on Jan. 3 that Destin made his appearance, weighing 2.76 kilograms (6 lb. 1 oz.) and measuring 48.89 centimetres (19.25 inches) long.

Skadsheim said Destin's middle name Hans has special meaning and is a tribute to her grandfather.

Destin joins his two big brothers Kailen and Noah Nooski, ages three-and-a-half and 22 months respectively. The boys seemed excited to have a new little brother, and Kailen was eager to try to hold Destin in the hospital.

Dad Tyler Nooski said he's happy to have another son, and Skadsheim said she expects to be very busy with their three boys in 2012.
